Central Arts July Comedy Club – Part of the Summer in the City Festival
Have a midweek laugh as Central Arts in association with the Lisa Richards Agency presents a double-bill of two top stand-up comedians each Wednesday in July!
Some of Ireland’s hottest – and funniest – comedy acts perform brand-new new, one-hour, work-in-progress shows. Check them out, for this bargain price, before they head to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
17th July – Fred Cooke and Hannah Mamalis.
Fred Cooke delivers a unique brand of comedy through his musical prowess and wild crafted physical story telling. He became a regular on the highly successful RTÉ Show, The Fear. He has been seen preparing a choral spectical surprise at a proposal in the Electric Picnic, embarrassing one of his fans at the Vodafone Comedy Festival, and proposing to an unexpected lady in Dublin City Centre.

Hannah has written two sitcoms for Dublin based Television Production Company Sideline which have been presented to both Sky Ireland and the BBC.
